Lamp reset procedure for JVC Projection TVs.

You replace the lamp in your JVC projection TV and it still will not work. What do you do?

You need to reset the lamp counter to make the unit work properly. Most TVs have a counter which keeps track of the number of hours that the lamp has been on. This is done to allow the TV to be able to give you a heads up as to when the best time is to change the lamp assembly so that it does not explode or fail with catatrosphic results. Most lamps last about 3 years or 6000 to 8000 hours. When the lamp timer is reset it will have another 6000 to 8000 hours before you will have problems again.

Here is the procedure:

Replace the lamp by following the manufacturer's procedure. Make sure that you have not only reinserted the lamp cover, but also screwed it down tightly. If not the lamp detection circuit may cause the unit not to work.
Plug the projector's power cord back into an outlet. The Standby/On indicator of the projector's top panel should light up in red.


Use your remote to press the following buttons, one after another: EXIT, ENTER, HIDE, then the DOWN ARROW. When you press the down arrow, hold the key down for at least two seconds. If you are successful, the Lamp and Standby/On indicators will blink alternately for three seconds, then the projector will return to standby mode.


This will finish the procedure and should allow the unit to work properly.

HOW DO I REPLACE THE LAMP


Hello
To replace lamp in JVC projection TV follow the steps below.
[1]. Order a compatible replacement lamp from JVC. Order a replacement lamp from JVC's Accessory Store or a local authorized parts distributor to ensure that you obtain a compatible replacement lamp. To order a replacement lamp, you must have the lamp type and lamp code of your JVC projection TV, which can be found on the rear of the television.
[2]. Turn off the television and allow the bulb to cool. For safety reasons, turn off and unplug your television before accessing any of its internal components. Wait at least 20 minutes before attempting to replace the lamp so that it has time to cool down. If the back of the television is not warm or hot to the touch, it is safe to begin removing the lamp
[3]. Unscrew and remove the lamp door. The lamp door on JVC projection TVs is located on the rear left of the television and is shaped like a square. Several warnings related to the lamp will be printed on the door. Use a Phillips-head or flathead screwdriver to remove the large screw, then remove the door
[4]. Unscrew and remove the lamp assembly unit. After you have removed the lamp door, you will see the lamp assembly unit. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the two screws. One screw is on the top right corner of the unit and the second screw is on the bottom left corner of the unit. Detach the lamp assembly unit from the compartment by lifting the handle and pulling the unit away from the television
[5]. Install the replacement lamp and secure the lamp door. Hold the replacement lamp assembly unit by the handle and insert it straight into the compartment. Reinsert and tighten the two screws onto the lamp assembly unit with a screwdriver. Place the lamp door back onto the television and tighten the screw to secure it to the television
[6]. Reset the television's lamp timer. Press "Menu" on the television's remote, then scroll to and select "Lamp Timer Reset." Press "OK" to rest the timer. A prompt will appear notifying you that the timer has successfully been reset

my jvc 56' flat screen is showing a message in blue to replace lamp but there still is a good picture?


Well, the message is trigger by the passing of time. The TV simply counts the hours the TV has been on, then when the counter hits the designated amount... the message starts to appear. Best thing to do is order a lamp and have it on hand. You can go into the TV menu and reset the lamp timer for now, just to get the message out of sight. When the lamp does fail, change the lamp and reset the timer again. I hope this was of some assistance, best wishes.

It means the counter hours have been reached... Is it possible that you've had the lamp replaced once before and didn't reset the counter??
